FACE CRITICAL OIL SHORTAGE: Shown here is the main street of McMurdo Station, the main United States base in Antarctica, where 1,300 servicemen, scientist, and explorers face a serious shortage of fuel. Supply ships, days behind schedule and miles away, have been slowed to a snail's pace by thicker-than-usual ice this year. Oil supplies used to heat the buildings, melt snow for drinking water and provide light and power are expected to be depleted by Dec. 9, even under drastic rationing now in force.
